  • Especially do not imagine you a big hike in primary forest. You arrive with the bus 101, of course you are immediately approached to offer you a boat trip to the beach of monkey Beach. For my part, I push everyone and I am alone on the forest path. The physical effort is due to the heat. Don't forget your water bottle. The ride is really nice and beautiful photos are to make. That day I had probably very lucky. It was 6 pm, not a cat and suddenly I saw a whole family of singes.je stopped, no contact with the eyes. And there, a little approached if sit beside me .the blow the whole family has joined. A moment of grace... But remain lucid, in a general way, to have traveled throughout the country, the Malaysia is a formidable destroyer of the environment and its wildlife. Palm oil is a global calamity.

  • My unforgettable place to enjoy with my sweetie.. This is the place that can make me remembered our happy days and memories.  more »
  • Very cool banks of the path after the roots, kładkach. Along the way, wild beaches and clean water. The monkey beach goes to 1-1.5 hours one way, then you can go ahead next time, come back on foot the same way or by boat (500 myr all boat-comes out quite pricey). Monkeys on the beach, unfortunately, was not ... Along the way, we met with three monkeys and a few more than a metre-long lizard:-) views. Note-canopy walkway (July 2017) closed! and it already it seems for some time-so how are short, I think that you can let go unless you have the time. Access: Bus 101/102 about an hour in one page (3-5) the whole tour took us to 5-6 hours almost all day.

  • Fantastic place for hiking or to appreciate nature. Go for Pantai Keracut trail (2 hours trail) and you are going to love the cleaner version of Penang beaches. Don't forget to drop by at the turtle conservation center too.
  • The place is still great if you are heading towards Pantai Kerachut, might get a chance to see turtle hatch. I do not recommend you to go to Monkey beach, poorly maintain and boat ride should be around RM 40 per boat as of Feb 2017.
  • Best place to escape! Out of people out of noise. Jungle track to kerachut beach for 2920m and 1 hour with normal speed
  • Beautiful place for trekking... Full slope climbing.. There are steps as well as trek, to climb the peak point..
  • had a lovely time walking to to keratchut beach, same distance to monkey beach (2990m) and walking is fun and safe enough
